 Test footage from “Stop Requested,” being filmed throughout Seattle.

You can just go ahead and call our neighborhood Little Hollywood.

In May, an upcoming film starring Kristen Bell called “Safety Not Guaranteed” was partially filmed in Maple Leaf at Wild Root Salon, 8814 Roosevelt Way N.E. Now Maple Leaf resident Alberto Lacao tells us that another film, called “Stop Requested,” is being filmed throughout Seattle this summer:

Abundant Productions’ STOP REQUESTED is a film written by Lorraine Montez, who is also in the lead role, and directed by local actor Ben Andrews (Star Trek Phoenix). It’s a metaphysical thriller about a woman by the name of Jess, who has a supernatural ability that leaves her sensitive to the spiritual realm, and who finds herself caught between a spiritual battle between light and darkness.

So far, filming has taken place at a hangar at the Sand Point Navy Base, and in Fremont at a house and a bus stop. But don’t be surprised if you see the film crew anywhere around the city. Lacao says they don’t have any locations secure, and plan to shoot thoughout Seattle and surrounding areas.
